  1. Nanostructured Tungsten for Improved Plasma Facing Component Performance

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: N/A

    70508B02-II To reduce the cost of burning-plasma experiments conducted for fusion energy research, refractory metals are required to increase high heat flux limitations for plasma facing component applications. For refractory metals such as tungsten (W) to be used in fusion applications, improvements in both mechanical and physical properties are needed. Because recent work identified the be ...

  2. Keyhole Squeeze-Off Tool to Enable Repair of Large (4" and 6") Polyethylene Gas Pipes

    SBC: Timberwolf Corporation            Topic: N/A

    70281S02-II There is a critical need for safe, reliable and cost effective repair of aging and expanding natural gas transmission and distribution polyethylene (PE) pipelines in the United States. The industry is moving to ¿keyhole¿ access to repair these pipelines because of safety, reliability, and cost benefits. The critical first step in gas line maintenance and repair is to stop t ...

  3. High Resolution Simulation of Liquid Jet Ejection and Aerosolization for Chemical/Biological Defense

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    High resolution modeling of the aerosolization process for relatively large liquid jets is needed to quantify the dispersion of hazardous chemical or biological agents from damaged/punctured containers. A second application is the prediction of thedistribution of neutralization agents injected into clouds of hazardous chemical or biological agents. A high fidelity model is needed to provide accura ...

  4. Attitude Control System for Laser Lightcraft

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Reducing the cost of launching payloads into low earth orbit by a factor of 10 or 100 requires revolutionary changes in launching architectures. The Laser Lightcraft holds the potential for such savings by placing the bulk of the propulsion system on theground by using a ground-based laser to provide the impulse for lifting the payload. Attitude control for the Lightcraft is critical. This Phas ...

  5. Agent Defeat Short Term Neutralization Data Colloction and Modeling

    SBC: AUBURN CHEMICAL CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    This research will determine extent and nature of the neutralization of bacterial spores when they are exposed, for very short times to high temperatures, pressures, and chemicals important in Agent Defeat weapons.. An exposure system will be constructedcapable of providing the ultra-short exposure times (on the order of ms) that are characteristic of bomb explosions and will be capable of exposi ...

  6. Truth Quest: Enabling Operational/Exercise Data

    SBC: HyPerspectives Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase II project will address enhancing ATR by developing techniques that use single and fused remotely sensed data sets to precisely characterize terrain environments, areas of potential trafficability, and areas of EOC clutter that can be ignored bythe ATR algorithms. These precision EOC identification and clutter-removal processes can be utilized as (1) a pre-ATR (terrain/ target potential ...

  7. Ecologically Benign Corrosion Protection by Stratified Coatings

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Military aircraft are largely constructed from special aluminum alloys, which typically have secondary precipitate phases that substantially improve mechanical strength. However, these regions also promote corrosion in such common environmental conditionsas acid rain, saltwater, and thermal cycling. The problem is significant enough that the U.S. Air Force expends approximately $1 billion per year ...

  8. SuMo SERS: A Novel, High-Reliability CBW Agent Detection System Using Surface-Modified Gold Nanoparticles as a SERS Substrate

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) is a powerful technique for detecting and identifying target analytes, such as CBW agents, even at very small concentrations. However, traditional SERS techniques often suffer from poor reliability andreproducibility. Nanoparticle-based SERS has a tremendous advantage over bulk-surface SERS due to a very high amount of surface area for interaction in a ...

  9. Acoustically-Enhanced Extractive Fermentation for Biomass Utilization

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    72428S03-I Combining the unit operations of solvent extraction and fermentation would substantially lower the capital cost and operating expense of converting biomass to usable products. However, attempts to develop these extractive fermentations have suffered from oxygen and mass transfer limitations and long coalescing times. This project will apply novel acoustic agitation technology in the ...

  10. Sonically-Enhanced Microbubble Flotation Column

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    72427S03-I Industry discards approximately one-tenth of mined coal. Also, nearly one-third of the phosphates mined in Florida, one-fifth of the tungsten mined in the world, and one-half of the tin mined in Bolivia are discarded as unrecoverable fine material. Large amounts of energy are invested in grinding these minerals, much of which is lost as uneconomical mining byproducts that are eventua ...
